Deviled Eggs

I love when the hubby compliments my cooking. But i think this past Saturday he gave me a "compliment" that i just didn't know how to take.

Saturdays are our mornings for big breakfasts. So as we settled down to scrambled eggs, pancakes and hashbrowns, James said:

When we get to heaven, i hope you have to cook breakfast every day!

I guess he doesn't realize that if I have to cook breakfast every day, my guess is that i didn't make it to heaven!

H is for Hell

15 months ago i would have never understood the humor of this photo...but thanks to Mr. River James, i about peed my pants when i saw this. It's so dang true. My mocha munchkin has mastered all of these, but his specialty is H is for Hell

Potluck Friday

Happy Potluck Friday!!!

  1. When i returned from the gym this morning i found James and River washing dog #2. I was surprised why this would be going on at 7 a.m. Well, apparently in what James describes as "sleep nagging" i tore him a new one last night about only washing one dog, so he set his alarm to get him and wash the other dog. At first i felt bad, but then it hit me: He doesn't listen to me when i'm "nagging" him when i'm awake, so why the heck would he listen to my sleep nagging?! I feel no guilt Mr. James! No guilt! Ladies, clearly sleep nagging is the way to get stuff done!
  2. Am i the only one who finds it odd and ironic that JC Penney is have a sheets sale in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day? Seriously JCP?! Don't stop there, go ahead and offer deeper discounts on white sheets!
  3. Today is a sad day for me. I will be spending my lunch break watching the last episode of One Life to Live. Those who know me well, know how seriously sad I am. I'm mad at ABC
    :( they should know by the tragedy that is the "The Chew" that canceling my stories to replace them with even worse shows is not a good idea. But what do i know? I'm just a chick who's been watching OLTL (that's what the cool kids call it) since the womb. I guess i can retire my VCR since i will have no need to tape anything again.
  4. According to a commercial i saw the other day Golden Corral has a chocolate fountain. So now buffet eaters can dip bananas, strawberries and dried out chicken in chocolate! I think this is a terrible idea and screams health scare. I mean, once i saw a kid groping the peaches at Golden Corral. This kid was elbow deep in the peach bowl just squeezing them. I went and found a worker and told her. She glanced over and of course the kid was gone and she said "I don't see anyone." Oh yeah lady, i forgot: if you don't see a kid groping the peaches, it didn't happen. Reason #4,593 buffets are icky.
  5. What's ReRe jamming this week? Adele, duh! Who's NOT jamming some Adele. Big Girls Represent. The song "Someone Like You" gives me chill. This girl can SANG!

My White Girl is Out

For those of you who don't already know...i did it: i joined Pinterest. Yes, i let my inner white girl out to shine!

But i'm gonna be honest. I don't really get the obsession. Have I found some awesome recipes that i can't wait to try? Yes. But outside of finding tasty recipes to pin to my "Yummy for My Tummy" board, i don't understand what else I'm supposed to do or what other folks are doing.

I pinned a Hunger Games poster to my books board. But i have no idea why or what that's supposed to mean. Am i telling people that i can read? Am I telling people that i've read The Hunger Games? Am I telling people they should read The Hunger Games?

Also the site is hecka slow at times. And am i supposed to also be posting my own recipes and crafts (yeah right!) so folks can pin those, or is there a Pinterest factory somewhere full of under paid workers who sit around making recipes and crafts to post to Pinterest?

And don't get me started on the other things i can pin: pictures of outfits on skinny models, baby clothes, Caribbean vacations, etc. Is pinning a vacation of a tropical island a reminder that i want to go there? Well, i don't need a reminder --- i KNOW that i want/need a tropical vacation!

A cute kids outfit? Do i pin this so i can make the outfit for River? Do i pin it so i can buy the outfit for River? Or is this a reminder to kidnap the kid modeling the outfit? (kidding! kidding!)

I kinda get the crafts. It's like recipes. You plan to attempt to make those things. But i'm not fooling myself. I know I'm not crafty and i've never heard of half of the material needed for these crafts and i refuse to ask the cranky old ladies at Hobby Lobby to help me. But who knows, maybe after making my first dish (look out Wednesday Night Girls!) i may give a try at a craft...or i might buy something that looks similar and pretend i made it!

Right now my inner white gal is still on the fence on how she feels about Pinterest, but she'll keep you posted!
